• A Christmas Tradition

    Christmas is just around the corner and I think I am going to have to make these again.  Don’t be scared…you can do this. It is all about Christmas patience Homemade cinnamon rolls are 1000% better than the canned version, but beware you have to plan ahead.  You need several hours (I started the process the night before) to let the dough proof and get ready to roll up into rolls.    SO what is proofing you ask?  Proofing is when you let the dough rise.  For this dough we are wanting it to rise, or proof, quite a bit.  The goal is at least double from its original size.…
